MEXICO CITY (AP) — Seven people have been murdered in the beach resort of Acapulco as the city continues to grapple with a violent crime wave, Mexican authorities said Wednesday.




The killings on Tuesday included the slaying of two men and a woman at an apartment used as an office for a taxi service.


Guerrero state security spokesman Roberto Alvarez said both men were bound with tape and all three were shot in the head. Family members said the men were taxi drivers.


Acapulco registered 483 homicides in the first seven months of the year. That was down about 13 percent from the same period in 2016, but still on pace for it to remain Mexico's deadliest city.

  1. And the nerve of the governor of Guerrero to discredit safety concerns for tourists. Furthermore, the fabrication of violence in his state.
    Either he is high on drugs or just in LA-LA Land with some mental illness!

  4. E42 I think your the one in LA-LA Land. These aren't murders of tourists, they are taxi drivers. The violence in his state are not fabrications, it's real. Your often off but you are WAY WAY off today buddy

    1. You are correct. But the violence is in the tourism sector. Raising concerns.
      Moreover, a governor who has been criticized for not doing much to stem the violence in his state.

    In E42's comments, where did he/she say that the victims of the homicides in Acapulco were tourists? Again, he never wrote that the violence in the state was a fabrication. He/she was directing the specific comments towards the governor of Guerrero. It's apparent that E42 used a source, other than this article, to reference the governor's comments diminishing the validity of the violence reports.

    I don't know what you were having your nana read to you but it's obvious, that whatever it was, you need to return to your cartoons and leave political commentary to the adults on this blog.

  6. what taxi company?
    Uber taxi drivers are hated by regular taxi drivers, taxi cab owners, some are "union taxi drivers' that believe their mafia owns the trade, even luggage handlers murder for their corners on bus stations, problem exists all over the US too, of course, Uber claims no responsibility or liability, the drivers take their own risks...

  8. Why do the poor keep killing the poor,.. Just kill the Capo's that don't wanna make peace.
    Those Who understand that dividing the big drugs-pie would bring the country so much peace and they could show the world and the USA especielly the money thats trown away with the war on drugs.
    Drugsworld needs a political change.
    Build hospitals, infrastructre. help the addicts and their family's.
    Looks like USA loves the chaos.

    1. Killing the capos ends up worse then when they were in charge. The top dogs keep the rest in check and a structure is formed. Once that top dog is taken out all hell breaks lose in a fight to inherit the leadership. Arresting and killing the top dogs has been showing for over a decade to be worse then letting things be how they were.

      If they really wanted to hurt the cartels they would legalize and regulate drugs. unfortunately though we have a fuckload of people counting on those people being Arrested and jailed in the USA (cops, dea, courts, prisons, etc.) it's just too profitable to control and regulate drugs though so it'll never happen. I don't see any other way we can stop the way things are currently.

      Eh

  9. Sounds like they ignored the paying of piso. Paid with their lifes. Sad.

  10. Sounds like they failed to make their monthly extortion payment. Everyone seems to be having to pay this tax these days. This corruption must be eliminated, but how?

  12. Tourist or not, nobody wants to risk or even think about being in the crossfire of those animals! Still not worth risking a trip for.

  13. A few years back a friend of mine owned a small hotel that chilangos could afford to stay in. It was clean but modest just a block above the main Avenue. This family's daughters went out to the tourist bars, met some guys and the next day the family was getting extortion calls from those guys to their hotel. They packed up and left. It's really a bad scene there

  14. I recently read that 130 cab drivers in Guerrero were killed in 2016. Not sure if it was here or on another site. If true that is fucking crazy
